Let the (Top Chef: Las Vegas) Games Begin


The sixth season of Top Chef begins next Wednesday, August 19, and Grub Street gets things rolling with an interview with the show’s lone New York contestant. Ash Fulk, a cook at Trestle on Tenth, dishes about trying to be a locavore in Las Vegas, how cooking on the show is harder than it looks, and his decision to wear a bow tie on air. Unsurprisingly, there are no spoilers — the people at Bravo guard the show’s secrets with a ferocity that would put a rabid wolverine to shame — but Fulk does offer a sartorial prediction: “My boyfriend told me the bow tie is the next big thing.”
